Chronicle of a Death Retold
Vanity Fair, by James Wolcott

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/6/2013 4:43:26 PM

It will be an anniversary draped in black crêpe and ribboned with old newsreels, a day of somber re-appraisals by the usual bores and lurid speculations by the usual loons. But beneath the cacophony, not all of it generated by Chris Matthews’s yap, will rest the severed feeling of irretrievable, inexplicable loss. Fifty years ago, on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated riding in a motorcade cruising through Dallas’s Dealey Plaza, the top of his head torn off by a rifle shot fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, his brain matter spilling

I have read too many books already about the assassination. There´s nothing left to tell.

This Wolcott is very difficult to read. He writes in essay-length paragraphs encompassing at least five or six ideas instead of one. No time to fool with a liberal who thinks he can write.

I was 12 years old when kennedy was shot. It was traumatic and it shook our nation to its core. However, kennedy was not special, he wasn´t even a very good president. Camelot was a joke and joe kennedy passed along his demons to his sons. The belief that jfk was something exceptional and would have transformed the US into heaven on earth is just so much pixie dust. When one dies young it is easy to write "what might have been". You don´t have all those ugly facts to get in the way. The msm covered his butt just like they are covering obama´s today. It was all a fraud, a mirage, make believe. It was horrible that he died that way and it left its mark on our country. But everyone can be replaced. I just wish a third of what is said about kennedy was true, but it isn´t. I will reflect back on the 22nd and remember. But I will not buy into this "happy talk" of the kennedy years.

I agree. This Wolcott dude is even more syrupy than Peggy Noonan after two glasses of Pinot.

After 50 years my main takeaway is that JFK was killed by an infantile anti-Amertcan crud-ball and the Democrat party has been emulating the assassin ever since.

The death of JFK was emblematic of what happened to the Democrat party and - unfortunately - to a large extent, America.

Fact is, Kennedy was an anti-Communist and his stupid younger brother talked him into taking out Fidel Castro numerous times, eventually resulting in the "Bay of Pigs Fiasco." All of thee actions required the authority of the lefts´ much beloved, darling, President Emperor.

Kennedy was gunned down by an anti-American, Communist, Cuba-loving, former Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald. End of story.

#6, the Bay of Pigs project actually started under Eisenhower...it was one of those rare cases where a new President could legitimately claim he "inherited a problem" from his predecessor.

However, the original plan was completely different from the grand debacle that finally unfolded on a Cuban beach in 1961. Unlike Ike, JFK did not have the guts to assert directly the United States´ interest in not having an outpost of Communism literally in its front yard. This cowardice was at the root of all the program changes, in the name of "plausible deniability", that led to its grand failure, America´s public humiliation, and Kennedy´s desire to regain his lost standing by way of an obscure land called South Vietnam.

The assassination elevated Kennedy´s presidency from mediocre at best to legendary. The assassination made Kennedy a saint/martyr who must never be denigrated or questioned. And the democrats have been propping up that corpse for 50 years.

Without the assassination, I doubt that any Kennedy would have gained public office or held it for long.

With #7, who has that particular history correct.

Next up... the photo of JFK provided with article is silly... a prayer book?
He used visits to church as cover for his playboy activities, as Clinton did.
Recall Billyboobboob Klintoon walking out of church holding Hillary´s hand and in
his other hand waving a Bible at onlookers, then headed back to a Sunday rendesvouz in the Oral Orifice with Monica.

As far as the assassination details...
the conclusion of the liberoid Warren Commission Report is false and concocted.
It contradicts much of the evidence contained within it.

I´ll encapsulate below in a moment...

Quickly and briefly...

Roger Mudd was a very good newsman. He hosted a special series for The History Channel.
It was called "The MEN Who Killed Kennedy".
You should see it.

Oswald was never above the second floor of Depository Bldg after 10:30am, according
to witnesses. He also had NO way to get back down to be found in the snack bar,
which was where he was on the second floor after the last shots were fired.

He never bragged or claimed to have shot JFK, and never expressed animosity toward
JFK either. He in fact told reporters (correctly) that he had not shot
anybody, that he was just a patsy, and that he did not know what he would be charged with.

J. Edgar Hoover hated all Kennedys, including JFK who wanted to fire Hoover.
Hoover knew of various plots, helped allow them to go thru, and covered up the
evidence as best he could.

JFK was blackmailed by Hoover and Lyin´ Lyndon into having LBJ on the ticket,
as pointed out by JFK secretary Evelyn Lincoln before she died.

JFK was also dumping Lyndon in 1964, as Lincoln wrote in her books.

Hoover and Johnson benefited and covered up what really happened.
See below.

As briefly as possible...

The plot to kill JFK in Miami several days earlier (Monday, November 18, 1963)
was foiled by switching from a motorcade to a helicopter ride to the speech.

The shooters then drove from Florida to Texas to kill JFK there. The Warren Com Report even
mentions that the shooters had an incident while driving through Louisiana.
It was reported and recorded, it´s in the Report.

Jack Ruby was seen by a Dallas newspaper reporter in the hospital hallway
where the "magic bullet" was found inexplicably on a stretcher outside
the emergency rooms.

The reporter asked him, "Jack, what are you doing here?" (this was Fri pm Nov 22).
Ruby mumbled a lame response. That was probably when the bullet got planted
as evidence.

The FBI tried to get the reporter to change his story, but he wouldn´t.

The autopsy doctors were not pathologists, and were ordered by military brass
what to do and what not to do. The original autopsy notes were burned as soon
as Oswald was shot dead.
That destruction of evidence was a crime.
So was the removal of JFK´s body from Texas.
The limo was quickly destroyed on LBJ´s orders. JFK´s brain went missing from the National Archives almost immediately.

And the list goes on... ad nauseum.
Only the uninformed believe the false conclusions put forward by liberoids
despite the ample evidence that is even contained in the Warren Comm Report.
Gotta go... sorry!

#7; that´s a cop-out to say Kennedy "inherited a problem" like a half-arsed amateur invasion of a sovereign country (even if it is Commie Cuba). General Dwight D. Eisenhower wasn´t some pampered Navy Lt. on a PT boat in the Pacific who got his boat sunk. Ike was clearly a more capable military commander than the son of the whiskey baron could ever claim.
More than likely Eisenhower had contingency plans, which ALL Presidents have, for a wide variety of things. Liberals seem to always find some "thread" back to a Republican Administration to justify their own screw-ups.

#11, #12; Lots of accusations, very little proof offered. It´s always "fun" to speculate, but that isn´t admissible in a Court of Law. The best analysis of this whole event is in the book written by Vincent Bugliosi called "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy." He has analyzed this in excruciating detail using every shred of evidence admissible, and came to the conclusion that Oswald did it, alone. I´m no fan of Bugliosi´s politics, but his work on this subject is without peer.

Re #10, 11, 12: Poppycock on wheels.

Oswald was the lone assassin--it was an easy 80 yard shot for him with his scoped rifle--and he fired from the sixth floor window of the Texas Book Depository after carrying the rifle up there wrapped in a rug. (He killed Dallas police officer J.D. Tippett shortly after he killed Kennedy and wounded Connelly.) I don´t like LBJ either, but he had nothing to do with Kennedy´s assassination.

You can see the topless 1961 Lincoln limousine in which JFK died in the Henry Ford Museum. If you don´t beloieve me, visit their website.

Sorry for the second post. The JFK limousine was cleaned up, fixed up, and used for several subsequent presidents. It remained in service until 1977.

Ages ago I read a story about the guy who drove it back to Detroit for repairs. He said there was all sorts of damage that was inconsistent with the Warren Commission version of events.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security.

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game.
